LOL, not hard to imagine if you've seen some of the videos where they're beaching old freighters to cut them up for scrap.

The Wolf of CNN reporting....

Information from the White House by Press Secretary, Kris Klinton, It has been confirmed that the 300 civilian deaths that Putinville has stated were actually caused by SU-50 (5th generation fighter) missing their targets, instead they bombed a Red Cross emergency aid station. The targets that were planned to be the Commonwealth militia stations, training centers, Because of the 5th generation technology in the SU-50, the radar capability of the Commonwealth has had limits and gaps since the General Fatsura and the Morrocodom Militia forces destroyed many air-traffic control and detection facilities in Morrocodom area. If the Putinville air force not attacked, those 300 civilians would ot have died. Putinville must be held accountable for this attack and the deaths of these civilians. Secretary Klinton said that Putinville must be held accountable, his aggression is not to be tolerated,

**This has been a special report by the Wolf.

The MV Tim Horton has docked back in Balzac safe and sound. She came in very low in the water on Wednesday evening and is still being unloaded.
Many brand new vehicles for the BSDF have been driven away and many tons of equipment are sitting on the dockside including a complete Bae Hawk jet trainer!

The local dockside pub "The Brass Monkey" is awash with tales from the crew of their passage by Gibraltar, with many warships in sight and aircraft overhead. One said they had two Balzac subs with them all the way home.
Another said, one complete deck was totally off limits to all crew and had an armed guard which they have never seen before, it was all listed for Rasen Falcon & Co.

The CoC, is delighted to send so many air crews to the air combat training and competition at Fighter Rodeo. Real opportunity to learn. Starting the engines sitting on the tarmac with wheels locked in place and 'playing pilot' is not fun any more.

Wolf Report from CNN,
Since pilots have withdrawn for the final stages of the conflict in Morrodom and Tunisdom, A few more people that had laid down their weapons appear to have picked them back up and trying to fight The General, Eli Fatsura. It is reported that he is was seen fleeing south in a group of vehicles. He was in command in an AML 90 4x4 armored car. Several trucks and other AML where in a group heading south to start a new government the Western Sahara. Although the UN has an outpost adjacent to the highway is reporting leaving the area as General Fatsura and his convoy of loyal supporters is approaching. So old Huey gunships have flown forward to recon and stake out area for the General Fatsura group. Putinville reportedly is expressing hope that the general is able to establish a new government somewhere, speaking from his toilet.

Public Announcement: the Training and Competition for Pilots, Air Crews and Ground Crews was a wonderful experience for the Commonwealth. We are proud to present to the Monarchy our outstanding men and women.

News report for end of the rebellion in Moroccodom and Tunisdom. Unfornately, many died, mostly civilians by the rebels shooting civilians who were caught going about their lives and not knowing what was going on.
Several members of the rebellion have been granted clemency and residency in Argentina and Bolivia. It is also reported that Camastan is taking 2 people with family in that country. Balzac considering accepting a few people for Goat Island if the UN provides assurances of extradition if civil rule of law are not followed. Rhodesia is accepting over a dozen of the enlisted members that were on the side of the rebellion, taking their families with them. These people must never return to the Commonwealth under penalty of death. All have forfeited claims of any assets in the Commonwealth.
Since dozens of M47E1s along with other AFVs that were destroyed in the conflict, the Commonwealth will be utilizing some of the hulls for targets for military training while others will be used a trophy for the rebellion as a reminder that the Monarchy and the Commonwealth are better off working together in our diverse culture. The remaining vehicles will be used to start a barrier reef in the Atlantic Ocean. General Smyth said that "these vehicles that were used for evil will be utilized for new life in the Ocean, so the world is better off. For that, we are all appreciative of that for the future of many peoples.

PostPosted: Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:02 am    Post subject: Economic Trade Reply with quote

The Wolf on CNNN reports that economic trade is increasing. It is reported that the MV Horton is in bound to BALZAC from the UK, I guess it (MV Horton) decided to Brexit. Then it will be loading agricultural machinery for the Commonwealth of Chrisdom. It is expected to make port in the Commonwealth in a few weeks after unloading surplus PDA (personal data assistants), 8-track tape players, and recently produced sun-dials made of paper.
Once these fine products are unloaded, the machinery will be loaded for the trip to the Med to the Commonwealth. The Minister of economic development, Prince Jacque Stock is delighted to send some farming equipment and some computers, 3D printers and laser design cutter for industry. Prince Stock did add that the laser have no military value at all except to remove paint from armored fighting vehicles. He did emphasize it had to be old paint The commonwealth did add that their may be a plane in the batch, which as you know is used for farming for pesticides. Also some track farming equipment are included.
The UN inspectors will be visiting the Commonwealth for a week prior to the expected arrival of the MV Horton, enjoying the scenery and take in some gambling to see if they get rich with the dice. Then plan to stay after the departure of the MV Horton on its return trip to BALZAC. The did say they did wish to see the show of the Swedish Bikini Team and socialize with those fine young people, certainly since they are out to improve the world and cure.... errrrrrrr... blemishes and acne. The UN is announcing its intent to nominate the Swedish Bikini Team for the Noble Peace prize, saying that they achievements are on par with the US President, Pres. 'O' and his Noble Prize.

UPI indicates that a shipment upon the Sea-Land Jacksonville is supplying used ships machinery to some find businesses in Virginia, USA. Expect delivery this week. It will occur at the Historicon Trade Expo.
GHQ Models will be entertaining all with great humor and quips on the manufacturing process of pewter. Thousands have signed up to learn for the State of the Industry experts in a presentation and Q&A session. Ruth's Chris's is catering the meals for GHQ. It is an open bar for all.
Update on the Brexit, it has been determined that Britain will from now on be an island. It wants to be separate from the mainland of Europe. So there will be a social similar to a graduation party for all to enjoy our common separatism.
This is Peirrie LaFrance reporting for UPI.

Chris,
Trade is picking up again. Pleased to say the cargo ship MV Tim Horton departed Balzac this Evening bound for the C of C with another full cargo.
Along with the normal commercial freight was another consignment of the ongoing arms deal "Northsteel 16".

This important arms deal provides vital work for the small defence industries of Balzac.
The final batch of newly stretched M113 APC's are now heading South.
Also the commercial off set allows new programs that benefit Balzac to start earlier than if we were to try to go it alone.
The new RWS and turreted systems from the C of C would have taken Balzac along time to develop.
This is helping to speed up the delivery of the much needed new wheeled IFV to the BSDF.

The Wolf reports from CNNN that the MV Horton has left port fully loaded yesterday.
The CoC Trade Commission announced that the RCCNS Tripoli (Royal Commonwealth of Chrisdom Navy Ship)[formerly known as the USS DRY Tortugas: check FB- Chris's Micro Armor] sailed from the port of Tripoli to Sardinia for the re-work facility there. It was loaded with Leopard 2A6 M to supply a company of armor. On unconfirmed reports, the transit back will contain CV9040, VBCI vehicles. Also with CAT road equipment and John Deere farm equipment. This is a further example of the economic development ties between the Balzac State and the Commonwealth of Chrisdom.
The CoC Trade Commission reports that economic trade with Fredricksburg VA went well. That the tactical scenarios just outside Fredricksburg were excellent. Major John Paul Jones said that "exploring to implement new armor techniques and battle management approaches was superb. That he and the battalion will be implementing the new techniques in training sessions with other army units of the Commonwealth." He also noted that it was hot, in the mid-40s C, 90 F.

Doug,
See Balzac Imagi-nation one forum page back for map.
Thats how I see Balzac, the Scandinavia of the Rockies.
CofC is a few thousand km East and South of here, unlikely to meet unless I make it to Historicon one day. Good trading parterns.
Regular air and sea links.

Camastan was SW of the island of Goatland. May need to redraw the map with a new Southern land boarder depending on how the evil cama returns.
The breakaway Camanaskis (to the West?) is at the moment an unknown factor.

Grab yourself Country and make a stand. We may well never meet but you will always have the perfect excuse for the next pewter arms race.
Mick.

The Commerce Secretary announces LOI (letter of Intent) to export several special vehicles to CA, USA.
Looking at the M1083 armored cab and armored box, Mk 23, RG 33, M1058 Wolf (M113 smoke dispenser), Hummvs, 40 ft trailers, and over the road tractors. The Depot re-work facility on Corsica will conduct maintenance on the vehicles prior to shipment. This will be a Sea - Land trans-shipment. The planned shipment will be by ship from the Commonwealth island of Corsica, then to Lisbon, Portugal, then to Jacksonville, FL, USA, there rail by CSX to CA.

The Wolf, on CNNN reporting.
There was some mixed up news from the English Channel today. There are ships and boats in the English Channel most days, certainly when the weather is pleasant. There is a bit of commercial traffic which dominates the volume of traffic in the channel. The MV Horton is sailing south with agricultural, commercial and military equipment on board. There was a GreenPeace ship in the channel, the Green Peace IV, it was following the coastal patrol boats of the HM Royal Navy. There was a passenger liner- the Britannic Liner, among others. There were some yachts out there and a HMS Naval training program with some small coastal patrol boats doing some rescue and life saving drills. Then it happens when another boat pulled up near the HMS Fearless, HMS Good Hope, HMS Life Guard were training. This boat opened fire with a Milan missile and several RPG missile shots. Hitting the HMS Fearless and the HMS Good Hope. It is reported that 4 sailors have died from the missile impacts. It is also reported that a missile was shot at the MV Horton, and there is not any word of causalities. SOS emergency message was made.

PostPosted: Sun Jul 24, 2016 1:03 pm    Post subject: Report of attack in the English Channel by Terrorist Reply with quote

NATO reports that the attack today was conducted by a terrorist group related to ISIS. ISTL has provided logistics and financial support. This group was under surveillance for several months. General Jaques, speaking at NATO Headquarters, in Brussels, said that members of the Free ISIS group were being tracked and monitored. But not each person was being tracked 24/7. This terrorist engage in the English Channel was a surprise, there was not any indication of this operation. The deaths of HMRN is 5 dead, 8 with serious wounds. The HMS Fearless was able to return small arms fire with two security sailors working a MMG from the stern deck. The Fearless is expected to return to port in several hours. A tug was able to begin a tow operation for the HMS Good Hope. The HMS Life Guard was able to rescue several people in the channel. As the two attack boats were seen heading towards the beaches in the Netherland, they were followed by Sea Lynx helos from the HMS Fearless. The pilot reported that the terrorist attack boats fired small arms at the HMS ships, at the HV Horton and at the GreenPeace IV. It is reported that two people from the GreenPeace were lift and flown to hospital in England, landing on the rear deck of GreenPeace IV. One was in serious condition hoping to live. The other has serious wound to his left arm.
.
England, the Netherlands and France have all sent rotary craft to offer assistance that have arrived in the area and pursuing the two boats. The first few helicopters were not armed, being rescue helos. Later, two Tiger helos from France, 3 Apaches from England and 2 from the Dutch army were release and authorized to engage if fired upon.
.
UPI indicates that it cannot be confirmed that several fighter jets were directed to the area to search for the boats.
....there are reports of smoke coming from the horizon of the Netherlands, Not sure what the source is. News will be forthcoming once information is available.
A raid is taking place currently in Amsterdam at 2 homes about 3 blocks from each other. The press believes that it is the initial police search and capture mission to take place. Several wheels armored vehicles are in the area just in front of the 3 story masonry home. There was some gun fire, smoke was seen coming from the chimney for the last hour, it is believed they were burning any papers or information that might be useful to authorities.
